2016In this edition of the Forney newsletter,  we highlight a great story of improved reliability at an AEP plant in Texas. As you’ll see a multi-disciplined team using a Lean Problem Solving methodology made significant cost savings by reducing oil consumption. And while the use of coal in the US is declining other countries continue to invest in this proven fuel. Forney has long supported safe and efficient combustion of coal as Mike Babb, VP Sales Asia, points out in his article. We have decades of experience and a strong sales network to support the planned expansion of coal in India. Finally we highlight our recent participation at Power Gen International in Las Vegas. For the first time Forney was exhibiting our full line of products which included several recent acquisitions. Many customers were exciting to learn that Forney can now provide a much broader portfolio of solutions including Burners, Igniters, Controls, Dampers, Seals, Expansion Joints, etc. Our line card is available for your review here.

We have many interesting articles coming in 2016 that will cover these topics and more –

  • We’ll soon open our new Combustion Research Center (CRC) and will host customers interested in exploring new ways to improve efficiency and reduce emissions in Power Generation. We have the capability to provide CFD models, for both burners and boilers. And with the CRC we can take those theoretical gains and demonstrate them in pilot scale.
  • We’ve implemented several oil to gas conversions at major utilities and we’ll show you those results.
  • We have an industry leading solution for HRSG bypass dampers utilizing our bi-plane design and we’ll discuss where this is being used and the advantages.
  • Many plants have challenges keeping their Air Preheater seals working properly. We’ll present the advantages of the Forney design and how it can save you money.
  • And we will launch new products and provide a full technical review of them.

We are looking forward to a great year and wish you the best in 2016!
